What is the Quayside™ font?
Quayside is a deliciously thick and bulbous baseball script, with a wealth of OpenType features.
Contextual alternates – I would suggest having these on by default; they make letters connect more smoothly (uppercase letters like M and H, which are normally non-connecting for all-caps purposes, connect to lowercase letters. The swash variant of J, and all o and b characters connect to any e character at a lower junction for a smoother join). Contextual alternates also make sure special end-forms of lowercase letters are used at the ends of words. More…
Ligatures – A nice collection of useful ligatures which make the text flow smoother.
Swash – Gives you more exuberant capitals. Not recommended for all-caps usage! The swash function also gives a variation of the ampersand and turns # into a nice numero symbol.
Oldstyle Figures – lining figures are default but with the flick of a switch in OpenType savvy applications, you get expressive oldstyle figures.
Quayside is a versatile typeface. Depending on the mood you’re after, it can easily be retro or modern, fun or (fairly) serious. I’m often pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of uses my fonts get put to, and I can’t wait to see what you do with this one!
